    Quick Facts



    Thinking of taking your laptop on the road? It's a great way to work and stay in touch when you're out and about, but you need to take some steps to keep your laptop safe–and in your possession. Here are some things you can do to keep track of your laptop:

    Treat it like cash.

    Get it out of the car…don't ever leave it behind.

    Keep it locked…use a security cable.

    Keep it off the floor…or at least between your feet.

    Keep passwords separate…not near the laptop or case.

    Don't leave it "for just a sec"…no matter where you are.

    Pay attention in airports…especially at security.



    Use bells and whistles…if you've got an alarm, turn it on.

    Where I work, all laptop users are provided a locking cable. When working in their office, the cable is supposed to be secured (wrapped around) the desk, a cabinet, etc., and the laptop so if they walk away from their desk, the laptop won't sprout wings.
